Help to find job opportunities

There is help in the local area to find jobs that match your skills:

Jobcentre Plus

Your local Jobcentre Plus can help you find a job or get new skills.

They can also tell you about companies in your area that employ people with SEND.

Your nearest Jobcentre Plus may also be able to arrange for you to meet a specialist work psychologist. A work psychologist can give you an employment assessment, where you will be asked about:

  • your work skills and experience
  • what sorts of jobs you are interested in
